The compression should be 130 to 150. The lack of power would be due to compression getting past the rings or valves or both. It sounds like it's time for a top end job. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

I have only 35 to 39 psi gas pressure reading what can cause this. I have replaced the filter plug wires coil packs. when stepping on gas pedal there is alot of hessation

check the tps(throttle position sensor) voltages and grounds. one wire is battery voltage the other is reference voltage and the third is ground. the reference voltage should get higher smoothly as you move the throttle without any dropouts anywhere in the full movement from closed throttle to wide open.

Power surging when accelerating

Fuel pressure Normal range is 35 to 70 PSI. Without the proper fuel pressure needed the vehicle surges and looses power especially goin up hill and at WOT(wide open throttle) . Its a good call if you change full filter your going to any way. you got a surge going on. Also check the airfilter once that plugs up it will also cause the surge. Surges happen when it lacks something so your getting less of some thing

Wheel keeps slowing down

Typically this occurs from a lack of air pressure. So check the psi from your supply. If its below 90 psi you can expect a lack of power and the wheel to slow. Another thought is their could be build up inside the grinder. Recomended Preventitive Maintiance suggest a few drops of oil before use.

My ematic wont will not work unless its on the charger

Hi, what causes the ematic won't will not work unless its on the chargeris because the battery cell powering your Mp3 player is too weak to power up the Mp3 player.

That's why when you plug in the charger it powers on , but can not charge up the battery because the battery cell is down..

When you replace the battery, make sure you charge battery for a list 4 to 6 hours before use, cause a new battery comes with a factory battery power of about 50to 60 %, but not up to100%.

So for the cells in the battery to function properly, you will need to charge battery to100% full.

Feel free to pass your comments.

Thanks for using fixya....

Lack of power in gas pedal

Check fuel pressure and see if its around 30-35 psi while under load if not replace fuel pump, also the gas thats in the tank may be no good if it has sat for so long..

Kx250 gearbox/drianplug leaking

There is pressure in the crankcase when the engine is running and when you rev it up this pressure increases. Oil pressure inceases with RPM and yes the oil will get frothy under pressure.

If you suspect the drain plug is leaking then remove the plug and wrap the threads with teflon tape and reinstall the plug, this should prevent the plug from leaking.
